DE INSECTIS ANIMALIBVS.

LIBER XXII.

PRÆFATIO.

                                        ACCEDVNT & superioribus figuris ac imaginibus
                                        aliquot minuta animalia, quibus naturæ inscrutabilis ratioNatura nihil otiosum produxit.
                                        majorem adjunxit admirationem, quod nihil etiam in
                                        minimis otiose productum videatur Quomodo vero
                                        producuntur, aut ad quem finem seu effectum conservantur,
                                        studiosis diligentius apud optimos autores ( vbi ita
                                        visum fuerit ) indagandum, ac plenius consyderandum relinquo:
                                        inter quos quantum Isidorus XII. Etymolo. Isidorus,
                                        lib. cap. VIII. de minutis animalibus præcipue volatiliebus
pulcherrimem tractans præstiterit, haud satis enarrari potest. Quantum etiam in talibus
specialiter exprimendis dudum Sapiens laboraverit, Proverb. XXX. cap. Animalia terræ minima, sapientiora sapientibus.
his verbis explicatur: Quantuor (inquit ) sunt minima terræ, & ipsa sunt sapientiora
sapientibus: formicæ populus infirmus, qui præparat in messe cibum sibi: lepusculus
plebs invalida, qui collocat in petra cubile suum: regem locusta non habent,
& egreditur vniversa per turmas suas: stellio manibus nititur, & moratur in ædibusAnimalia parva innatam prudentiam habent.
Regis. Quæ omnia animalia, licet parva corpore sunt, habent tamen insignem quandam
innatam prudentiam: formicæ quidem ad sedulitatem monent: lepusculi suo
exemplo veram quærendam securitatem, quæ in petra (id est CHRISTO) est,
informant: qui cum in terra timidi, in mari formidabiles. Horum Ambrosius inLepusculus in mari formidabilis.
hunc modum lib. V. Hexamer. cap. X. meminit: Lepusculus quoque timidum
animal in terris, in mari formidabile, citam, & quæ non facile possit auferri, corruptelam
invehit. Voluit enim te creator nec in mari satis ab insidiantibus esse securum,
vt propter pauca, quæ noceant, quasi in excubiis positus, arma fidei semper,
& feutum devotionis accinctus, a Domino tuo debeas salutis sperare præsidium.
Hæc Ambrosius. Locustæ justitiæ exemplum proponunt. Sine rege
